Veit Automotive Foundation Educational Museum

Central, Minnesota

The Veit Automotive Foundation Educational Museum is preserving Cars for Future Generations, educating all ages about our past & present while preserving Classics for the future.

The Veit Automotive Foundation is more than about the Hot Rods we display.  They are about the history, the people, the car clubs, and the genre it represents. 

The Foundation started with modest beginnings as the Veit Family car collection. Early on, they shared the family’s personal car collection with friends, family, and car clubs alike. It wasn’t until they established the non-profit 501C-3 foundation and opened the museum to the public for the first time in July of 1998 that the foundation became official.

Today, the Veit Automotive Foundation is located on a 500-acre campus an hour outside of Minneapolis just South of Monticello, MN off of I94. The foundation’s multiple vintage-looking barns house the 70 plus restored vehicles and over 200 rare and unusual gas pumps. 

The vehicles reside in the vintage-looking barns specifically built to house the vehicles on display. The foundation’s museum allows us to share the historical artifacts within the collection.
